Our Story 

Ottimo [Ot-ti-mo]

ADJECTIVE (superlative of buono) very good * excellent

Ottimo finds its origins in the dedication of co-owners Gavin Hayes and Anne-Laure Laudic. Over the span of eleven years, we established ourselves as Vetro Mediterranean Foods, operating within the framework of the Vetro Group Franchise.

In 2023, we felt it was time to move away from the Vetro umbrella and spread our own wings so we can offer you an even better service. This has come with a new and improved website so you can order your favourite products right from the sofa at home while enjoying a wine or two! Choose from having it delivered to your home or click and collect for your convenience from our splendid premises at 322 Devon Street East, New Plymouth.

We are still the store you have grown to love and it’s still us, your local foodies Gavin & Anne-Laure behind the new brand.

Our retail store is open from Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm, and on Saturdays from 9:00am to 3:00pm. We're closed on Sundays and public holidays.

As a trusted and experienced purveyor of Mediterranean cuisine, we believe that everyone should have access to high-quality food at fair and affordable prices. Our online store offers a wide selection of high-quality products, all carefully curated and sourced from the best producers in New Zealand, Europe and the Mediterranean region.

Thank you all for being a part of this journey, our future is not only feeling good, it’s ottimo!
